Evidence-Based Practices for Social Workers is highly accurate, extremely well documented, informative, and clearly illustrates the amount interventions are documented by research. This book shines a light on the next wave of practice methods, and therefore should be required reading for every social work practice and policy student. --Edward Taylor, University of Minnesota
